TEncoder is a multithreaded gui for ffmpeg, mencoder and mplayer.
If you want to translate TEncoder to your language, please contact me.
-Run up to 8 simultaneous processes and/or make FFMpeg and Mencoder to do internal multithreaded encoding.
-Hard-code subtitles with same name as video using Mencoder
-Do two passes to improve quality
-Pass custom options to encoders
-Extract audio or video
-Extract parts from file
-Convert audio files (mp3 to aac etc)
-Select audio track from files with multiple audio tracks
-Extract jobs to .bat file so they can be run later
-Preview files with all options applied
-Works under Wine
Latest version is 3.4.1
You can download it from here: http://www.downloadbestsoft.com/TEncoder-Video-Converter.html
TEncoder downloads version file from Dropbox. No information is sent during that process.
Any suggestions, criticisms etc are welcome.

I'm looking forward to 1.4. I'm using 1.3 now. This may seem like a dumb question but I know there's a setting to encode say 5 or 10 minutes of the video for testing. I just can't find where the enter the number. Can you tell me which button to press to get to the setting?
Thanks for the tool. I often use it to transfer video to another container changing only the audio encoding so my set top box will play it.
You would probably enter the command in the "custom video options" command line box
In FFmpeg, the command is -t for duration and -ss for start time
So if you wanted to encode 10 seconds , starting from 01 second in (this would encode from 1second , lasting 10 seconds, to the 11th second)
-t 00:00:10 -ss 00:00:01
Tried both Installer and Portable 1.4.
Running the program pops up an error dialog
Cannot find sub style file. There will be a problem with Previews.
There is a new version 1.4.

One other thing I noticed. I often repackage .mkv as .mp4 and only encode the audio to AAC since my WD set top box likes that better than .mkv most of the time.
Even if I set container to MP4 in the drop-down, have video set to Copy and AAC for audio, in the output folder the file still has .mkv extension. Just seems odd. I think I did see it change to .mp4 once or twice. But I haven't figured out what the factor is to ensure the extension change.
I tried such a repackage to .mp4 yesterday with 1.4. Process and play went as expected.
Is the created file a MP4 or MKV file? Maybe extension is wrong.
Can you export command lines into .bat script and send it to me so i can find the problem?
In order to do that under "Extra Options" select "Export to script". Next time you run encoding process, a .bat file will be created under script folder.
Ok, I think I have it now. After loading in the stuff and making the settings I want, if I then hit Apply button it seems to want to output .mp4. Once I'm used to it I'm sure it will run gang busters.
Just a positive observation. In the past I used TEncoder to move video to another container, just processing the audio. But I had only done single files. Last night I did 11 videos in batch on my dual core!! It zipped right through 'em!! The program really shines when used in batch mode!! I can see I'm going to be using TEncoder a lot!!
Glad to see it works as i intended. ^\o/^
Yes skins were removed with 1.4 but they will be back with 1.5.
I do keep encountering situations when wrapping a single video in another container using v. 1.4 where the new container extension is not used. As I mentioned before .mkv output that's supposed to be .mp4 can end up in the output folder as .mkv. I tried hitting Apply Button a bunch of times, using the drop down to set the container again, adding the video file before/after doing all this stuff. But on occasion it just stubbornly keeps the old extension.
I know I can just retype the extension to what it should be. But it's baffling why it's happening.

That's really strange. Can you lead me step-by-step so i can reproduce the problem?
Only load one .mkv. Set container to .mp4. If the output file doesn't keep the .mkv extension then it's something intermittent and I don't so how I could reproduce it. The only time I did a batch run, the output files were named correctly. So I suspect it happens when doing one-offs.
Usually I encode audio while just using Copy for video, if that's a clue.
I still couldnt reproduce the problem :S
Please make sure before you start encoding container is selected as "mp4" because extension is generated from that information. If you are using a preset, again, check for container option for that preset.

@thezanny no i don't think so.
I have never worked with blu-ray discs before but I will look into it.
By the way, you can ONLY burn-in external subtitles with TEncoder at the moment.
